2019 NT Training Award finalists announced
The 33 outstanding individual finalists and 15 organisational finalists in this year's NT Training Awards have been announced.
The NT Training Awards put the training sector in the spotlight by highlighting the achievements of apprentices, trainees, vocational education and training (VET) students, training organisations and employers.
The awards help highlight the opportunities the VET sector provides people to upskill or retrain, ensuring they can adapt to a changing economy, workplaces and jobs.
The individual finalists will join the organisational finalists at the awards presentation in September. Winners of certain categories may be eligible to compete against the nation's best at the Australian Training Awards later in the year.
The NT Training Awards 2019 winners will be announced at the presentation dinner on 21 September at the Darwin Convention Centre - tickets will be available to purchase mid-July.
